Yippee-ki-yay, new Die Hard game coming exclusively to mobile phones

Thanks God! If I’m ever stuck in a vent somewhere while trying to save my wife from terrorists, I’ll have something to play.

Mobile game developer, Gameloft, has secured a multi-year agreement with 20th Century Fox to develop, publish, and distribute the “official” mobile game based on the upcoming film, Live Free or Die Hard. Whether or not the explicit use of the word official means we might seen unofficial products is unknown, but one can only hope. 

Gamers are no stranger to Die Hard‘s Detective John McClane, the hard nosed New York City cop who has found himself in not one or two, but now four terrorist/hostage situations. From an NES disaster to the English language version of the Sega Saturn’s Dynamite Deka (Die Hard Arcade), the digital McClane has made his rounds.

The guy is a legend. Hit the jump for some of my favorite John McClane quotes.

  • * “Nine million terrorists in the world and I gotta kill one with feet smaller than my sister.”
  • * “No f**king s**t, lady. Do I sound like I’m ordering a pizza?”
  • * “Take THIS under advisement, jerkweed.”
  • * “Yippee-ki-yay, motherf**ker.”
  • * “You should have heard your brother squeal when I broke his f**king neck.”
  • * “Sister Teresa called me Mr. McClane in the 3rd Grade. My friends call me John … and you’re neither s**thead”
  • * “What the f**k?”
  • * “Oh, John, what the f**k are you doing? How the f**k did you get into this s**t?”
  • * “Hey, Carmine, let me ask you something. What sets off the metal detectors first? The lead in your ass or the s**t in your brains? Fat f**k.”
  • * “Just once, I’d like a regular, normal Christmas. A little eggnog … a f**kin’ Christmas tree … a little turkey. But, no. I gotta crawl around in this motherf**kin’ tin can.”
